Evi, Finland’s most experienced karaoke hostess, wants to hug her customers’ pain away. She yet again packs her equipment and starts a car engine to travel through the northern landscapes of Finland. Her journey interconnects with the stories of KARAOKE PARADISE. Toni, the shyest guy in the world, catches everyone’s eyes when on stage. Kari is searching for love and sings in his empty karaoke car repair shop. Elina can hardly walk because of Parkinson’s, but punk songs make her dance. Laura sings because talking is too painful. Finns have found a unique way out of loneliness: they sing.
